    Though it is recommended on the web page there are quite a few reports in the forum saying that Unetbootin is the way to go.

    I was going to try Unetbootin next. However I decided to download (from Ubuntu.com) from within 10.04 and burn the CD from there. I also set the burn speed to the lowest speed. This worked for me no problem. Not sure what was corrupting the file...

    Re: cannot mount /dev/lop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem. squashfs

    I got the same message, with the 1st disk I burned. After reading a couple of the posts I decided to try a couple of things.

    This is what worked for me.
    I had downloaded ISO Image Burner 1.1 from isoimageburner.com (not pushing the software it's free)

    I selected the ISO image to burn (ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso), however this software has a checkbox for boot image and it allows you to select a boot image. I selected the same ISO image as the one I had selected to burn (ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso).
    I selected the slowest speed (someone mentioned this on a previous post)
    Clicked burn and it worked great, booted from the CD and installed.

    I am having exactly the same issue and none of the aforementioned fixes works for me. I'll re-download Ubuntu and just hope that it works, if not then I't's just a waste of time. It takes all night to download a file that big at the internet speeds available in this house. Shame really.

    Before downloading again you should test the MD5 sum of the ISO. If it is correct, there is no point in a new download.

    A better choice is trying an older release of Ubuntu, preferably an alternate install.

    Re: cannot mount /dev/lop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem. squashfs

    Just adding mine to the list here. When performing the default install on a Latitude D620 I got the "cannot mount /dev/loop0" error. I then tried the "try it before installing" option and BusyBox tells me "No init found. Try passing init= bootarg.

    Ubuntu 10.10 is certainly not ready for prime time folks. I can easily get this installed, but just for S's and G's I'm going to Fedora to see if I run into any issues there. 10.10 is simply not stable enough for me to use daily (that is the impression I have anyway).

    Problems during installation is not the same as an unstable system once installed.

    Basic problems (like this) during installation are most certainly indicative of an OS that is uncooked, unstable, buggy and not ready for daily use.
